Morning smoothies are my thing. I like pulling out my Nutri Ninja personal blender and whipping up some good stuff to get my day going. Fruits and sometimes veggie mixed up with some almond milk makes for a great start to the day. But it needs a base, some form of protein powder. That is where I grab my bag of American Natural Superfood.
Now I have tried dozens of different brands. I have tried straight protein powder of different varieties, and I have tried the kind flavored and mixed with other vitamins and supplements. I have tried vegetarian, vegan, and even RAW. But the one I like the most is American Natural Superfood.
I got my first taste of American Natural Superfood with a free sample through the mail. I upgraded to 4 samples, which is a good thing – I’ll get to that in a minute. Just had to pay shipping.

This Protein Powder and Greens Mix Tastes Great with Your Favorite Milk, Soy Milk, Almond Milk, or Water
It takes just 20 seconds to mix up and costs just $2.10 per complete and healthy meal. No more shopping, juicing, and cleanup! And it doesn’t taste like dirt or stink like so many other greens powders do.
First, the good.I like the vegetarian protein doesn’t contain soy. Already too much of that in my diet. I like that it has green and probiotics, and stevia instead of artificial sweetener.
The mix is good, after a fashion.
The bad, well its around $2 a serving on Amazon. Not the highest price, but not the cheapest. Like most mixes, it doesn’t dissolve well.
My first sample was used mixing up the recipe included with the samples. Ehh. Powder kept settling. Flavor was a little odd to me. So I decided to use a few tricks I know.
First, I added a banana. This actually helps keep the powder from settling, and even out the flavor a lot.
Then I replace the ice cubes with frozen fruit of veggies. More healthy stuff and keeps it cold without watering it down.
Now obviously, this recipe does require the blender, instead of just a shaker bottle. If you are in a hurry, you can toss two scoops in your shaker bottle with water, almond milk, or whatever you prefer and a few ice cube. Just be sure to shake it up before each sip.
I really like the way this fills me up and gets me going in the morning. You can order it from Amazon using this link.
